I'm going insane. My soon to be ex husband is staying in the house with me and my kids while he is in for a visit. He lives 2000 miles away and is in visiting for the first time in 5 months. He is totally broke and Lord knows how he even got the ticket to get here. He has no respect for boundaries what-so-ever and he wants to act like everything is the same. I have tried hard to move on..he cheated on me and hurt me very bad before. He's driving me crazy, sleeping on my couch, he's getting into my closet (weird) and using my vehicle. IM GOING CRAZY!! What would you all do??? He's here for six more days. I want my kids to be able to spend time with their dad (they are very young) but I am gonna go crazy!!!

Serves him right for cheating on you--I mean, he's broke now.. that's what I call "karma", or you reap what you sow.. . your soon-to-be ex-husband must be delusional--thinking maybe that everything is alright. He started a fight he could not win...I understand how you must have felt about this seeming intrusion into your privacy with your kids. You really have to lay down your cards and set the rules with him, or else. . .He should not be helping himself with your things nor with your vehicle...tell him at once and assert what your conditions are while he is visiting.

Have you tried talking to him about the boundaries? That's the best piece of advice I've got for you expect just remember he'll be gone soon enough :) Good luck sweetie :)
